New Things from Bodyline & fyeahlolita’s 52 Week Lolita Challenge

Lately the lovely AyraLeona placed an order at Body Line and was so nice to order two items for me, too. They’ve been here for a week or so, time to show you what I got.

With a brief stop at AryaLeona’s place the parcels arrived in the iconic Body Line package. I really thought about what I could do with them, I just love the stripes, but they ended up with all those other plastic bags I keep to line my dustbin. Such a shame.

The first thing I ordered was the Sweet Biscuit JSK (L 191) in green. Somehow, and I don’t really know how exactly, I’ve wanted something of this print ever since I first laid eye on it. I’m not even the sweet type most of the time! The green is more of a very light mint, but I’m fine with that. The JSK came with two detachable bows. I’m not so fond of cluttering my clothes in big bows, so I’ll see what to do with them. I’ll have to make a few alterations anyway, but that’s material for another post.

Sorry about the wrinkled fabric, I took the picture right after getting it out of the bag. I adore the print, it’s just so sweet (literally). I fear I’ll need larger amounts of biscuit-themed accessoires.

The best thing about this print is that I can coordinate it with black and white. It also has enough pink/dark red in it to throw in these colours as well.

The second item was the Rose Bouquet skirt (L514). When I sent her my orders, AryaLeona told me she had it on her list, too. ^^
I really like the lace on this one. It also has a detachable bow, but luckily that’s the only one seen around this piece, and it’ll probably end up as a headpiece.

I think about changing the plastic boning for spring steel in the near future – I completely took it out with my Love, Nadja skirt where it worked well, but I like the shape of the waist here, so I’ll probably just replace it.
The print is really lovely, and I can see this with a (a little more mature) sweet as well as, of course, a classic coordinate. It might even be useful for Steampunk. We’ll see!

I’ll need a pair of shoes to match it, but I already have something in mind. Shoes are possibly my biggest problem in Lolita right now, but I’ll change that rather sooner than later. Thanks again to AyraLeona for ordering for me!

Now on the the second part of that post title.

Yes, it’s not even a new year, and I already did a Lolita Challenge way back then when I (I think) had just started writing this blog, but nevermind. I read a few post about this challenge lately, and somehow I caught fire. Here’s the tag for all the posts.
